Thanks to VIVO

We are massive supporters of the VIVO project and were Platinum sponsors of the Annual VIVO Conference this year. As expected it was a great event and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the delegates and hope to see you at another event soon.

We were very lucky to have Mike Conlon, the principal investigator of the VIVO project, come and talk to us at our user conference earlier this year. It is exciting to see how VIVO has created a platform for research discovery with a growing world community of collaborators, scientists, implementers and developers. With all the excitement around VIVO, we are confident its going to be great working with them in the future.

More about VIVO

The VIVO project was initially started in Cornell as an open source web application to collate research and scholarship information within an institution and then provide academics with an institutional profile.

With this partnership, we have the opportunity to position ourselves as
a world leader in the development of the scholarly ecosystem.

Keith Webster, Dean of University Libraries, Carnegie Mellon

I cannot overstate how pleased we have been.
We have to have confidence to work with a partner
for at least 5 years on a project of this size.

Caleb Smith, Senior Strategy Manager for Research Intelligence & Analytics, University of Michigan

“Faculty need only spend perhaps less than an hour a year to prepare and submit their annual reports.”

"Leveraging the interoperability between Symplectic Elements and DSpace has increased policy-driven institutional repository deposits by over 350%."

Ellen Phillips, Open Access Specialist, Boston University

Elements elegantly connected our multi-university system providing a
single source of truth throughout OIEx.

Tim Cain, The Ohio Innovation Exchange (OIEx)

The University measures the individual research activity of academic staff. This Measure of Research Activity (MoRA) requires the collection of publication data from faculty. Symplectic Elements supports this beautifully.

Floris van der Leest, Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia

[Elements] will help to bring transparency to the richness of thought showcased within non-traditional publications, providing a more holistic representation of faculties’ scholarly work.

Caleb Smith, University of Michigan

Feedback to date has been extremely positive from all levels across the University, with individual academics and colleagues actively promoting the ease of use of the system.
